When you build a thing you cannot merely build that thing in isolation, but must also repair the world around it, and within it, so that the larger world at that one place becomes more coherent, and more whole; and the thing which you make takes its place in the web of nature, as you make it.

He who seeks truth, shall find beauty. He who seeks beauty, shall find vanity. He who seeks order, shall find gratification. He who seeks gratification, shall find disappointment. He who considers himself a servant of his fellow beings, shall find joy of self-expression. He who seeks self-expression, shall fall to the pit of arrogance. Arrogance is incompatible with nature. Through nature, the nature of the universe and the nature of man, we shall seek truth. If we seek truth, we shall find beauty.
